    The victory salvaged the week for the Eagles after they had lost the first two games of the eight-team event. On Thursday there was a 79-44 setback to the host team before a 58-52 loss to Sixth Region rival Jeffersontown on Friday in the consolation bracket.

  • Early Wrestling Action

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- The high school wrestling season is up and running in Bullitt County.

    Bullitt Central recently hosted a tri-meet with Anderson County and South Oldham.

    The Cougars finished in a 36-36 tie with Anderson County and fell to South Oldham 39-30 in front of an excited crowd of all ages.

    All three schools have programs this season with both Bullitt East and North Bullitt having new coaches.

    Bullitt Central returns Nick Ackley for his second year as the head coach.

  • Lady Cougars set for a break

       SHEPHERDSVILLE – The offense woes for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars were back in full force last week after the team had its two most productive offensive games in the previous ten days.

    Scoring just 38 points in two games, the Lady Cougars lost a 61-23 decision to Lexington Bryan Station on Tuesday of last week and after spending the night in Lexington, the team fell to Paris 56-15.

  • BE’s Murphy signs for golf at Campbellsville

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Often when it comes to the smaller sports and college signings, athletes will work through the head coach.

    But for Bullitt East senior Mark Murphy, knowing Campbellsville assistant coach Casey Young for the past several years paid big dividends when it came time to make contact with a college. It didn’t take very long for Young to sell head coach Jim Ward on the need to ink Murphy.

    It also didn’t hurt that Bullitt East golf coach has known Young since both played and completed in college against each other.

  • Lady Chargers make strides in own tourney

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – A pair of short bursts in the fourth quarter of each of the final two games of the tournament kept the Bullitt East Lady Chargers from making last week a coming out party for a program that started this season without any returning starters.

    Still, coach Chris Stallings’ program posted a 2-2 record in the second Queen of the Commonwealth tournament and finished fourth in a loaded field that included four teams ranked among the top-25 teams in the pre-season as well as defending state champion and pre-season number one Mercer County.

  • Cheerleading is all the rage in Bullitt County

      SHEPHERDSVILLE – Rivalries are great things.

    More than anything, they set a bar for others to emulate. Sometimes one rival raises another. Other times two rivals push each other to the top.

    Make no mistake about it, Bullitt Central and Bullitt East are rivals when it comes to cheerleading. But the two programs have done it the right way. They don’t fight and scrap. Instead, they support each other.

  • Lady Cougars grab elusive first win on Friday

     SHEPHERDSVILLE -- In high school basketball there are no ugly wins and no beautiful losses. The final score decides a winner and loser.

    Through the first three weeks of the 2017-18 season, the final scores have not been kind for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars. The team had lost it’s first five games with each of the defeats coming by at least double-digit margins.

  • BE’s Queen of the Commonwealth heads tourney play

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – With four of the top 17 teams in the pre-season coaches’ poll in the field, including defending state champion and top-ranked Mercer County, the Queen of the Commonwealth Tournament this week at Bullitt East will be one of the top girls’ events in the state this season.

    The new kid on the block, the Queen of the Commonwealth event has 16 teams with each of the teams playing four games. This is the second year for the event with Male having captured the first event last year, beating Bullitt East in the championship game.

  • North Bullitt wins 6th Region crown

  • BE gets strong outing at home to beat Taylor

     MOUNT WASHINGTON -- The Bullitt East offense went into high gear on Tuesday as the Chargers exploded for a season-high 85 points as they cruised past visiting Taylor County 85-67.

    Bullitt East came out shooting the ball well as they scored 23 points in the first eight minutes to take a 12 point advantage. The lead was still in double-digits at 39-28 at halftime.
